Oh, trust me, I know what a good sub can do. I lived with my brother (pmbuko on the boards here) for 4 years and got to enjoy his M22 + SVS PB12-ISD combo on a regular basis. And though you may not be able to hear below 25hz that well, you can definitely feel below it.

That seems to be a pretty good price for shipping that beast.

"When I get to college..."

Anybody else get excited by that phrase? Oh, the possibilities.

Not really. Young men never really did it for me.

Well, I'm IN college. When I physically return from my break and "get" to college, everyone will see my new axioms.

It's here.

The PB10 arrived a little after 6pm today. I've got it set up right in between the entertainment center and my left M3ti. After a very quick level check I was somewhat underwhelmed. Spent the last few hours calibrating (the Avia disc helped out a bunch!) and now it's really cooking. In a word: sweeeeeeeeeeet. In more words: "holy [censored] this is an incredible sub!" Pictures shortly.

In related news - anyone have a link to some downloadable test tones so I can see how deep this thing goes in my room? (it hits 20hz with ease on the Avia sweep)

Pictures as promised:

Truth in Advertising?


It's huuuuge!


Positively gargantuan!


Okay, maybe not


But it sure sounds BIG. This was my vision after a particularly deep impact.

Well, Adam, if a mere 20Hz isn't sufficient to give that monster a workout maybe the simplest thing to try would be the 16Hz warble tone on the Hsu site . Of course it's been rumored that the Hsu test tones will instantly destroy SVS subs, so you might also look at the RealTrap test tones. Then obviously you need a good Bach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor for an organ workout so that you can see if it's "musical".

Thanks for the tone suggestions, John. I actually found a nice little shareware program that creates test tones and sweeps (Audiotest - for Mac). Created a cd of test tones in no time. I also have a Telarc recording of Dupre, Franck and Widor organ works that I'll have to give a spin.

After some brief test tone testing:
14hz - virtually no output
15hz - Some tactile output, not enough to rattle anything unless I venture way above 0dB
16hz - Getting stronger - vibrations throughout the room
17hz - Very solid output - vibrations and rattling like crazy
18hz-20hz - It looks like the PB10 really gets into it's comfort zone in here.

So, solid bass output to 17-18hz, with useable output to 16hz? Not bad, not bad at all.

You're gonna have to watch some movies to experience those frequencies. Music rarely, if ever, has those kind of low frequencies.

I hope you are enjoying your new sub with the same excitment I am mine! I know the feeling where your sound just sounds complete when you get your sub.
